Amit Patel, aka Dushume, is an experimental noise artist/musician from Leicester who
is influenced by Asian underground music and DJ culture. His work focuses on performing
and improvising with purpose built do-it-yourself instruments, and how looping techniques,
re-mixing and re-editing approaches can shape studio works. Lack and loss of control are central to his work.
He is currently undertaking a PhD, “Theworkbench, studio and live practice: new modes of electronic
music making”at the Music, Technology and Innovation Research Centre,
De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
Pascal Savy is a French sound artist and performer based in London. He started making music in the late nineties influenced by early techno and experimental electronic music. Over the last decade his music has become sparser and more disembodied, often reflecting on time, presence and the elusiveness of reality. He has released works on labels such as Audiobulb, Hibernate and Eilean Records, and in late 2016 was an artist in residence at Iklectik Art Lab where he curated a 2-day series of events presenting film, visuals and music around the theme of emergence.
In parallel to his work engaging with the more atmospheric edges of ambient music, he has been heavily influenced by the writings of cultural and political theorist Mark Fisher and has explored through his recent sound work more reactive and politically charged terrains. His latest album ‘Dislocations’, released on Experimedia in May 2018, was conceptualised and articulated around the concepts and ideas developed in ‘Capitalist Realism’ in which Fisher surveys and analyses the symptoms of our current cultural and political malaise.
For this event he will follow up on those themes and present a new live electronics piece reflecting on the violence and disembodied forces that have been characterising late-capitalism and will explore for the matter rawer and more abrasive territories.
Khaled Kaddal is an artist, whose works scope on cross-disciplinary approach, integrating sound, moving images and other media for performances and installations. His research and art practices adopt contemporary socio-political aesthetic, focusing on the sensory memory (iconic memory and echoic memory) of the human body.
He pursued his MA studies in Sound Art in University of the Arts London (UAL), where he developed his practice-based research on the sonic ecology of warfare and re-listening to the traumatic sonic memory.
